The smart hub is an essential component for controlling today’s smart home technology. The smart hub is the brain center of an automated home; connecting all your wired devices, facilitating communications between them, and enabling control of them remotely from a single access point.
There are a number of ad-hoc, one-room smart hub solutions currently on the market. They include Wink 2, SmartThings, and Apple’s Homekit amongst others. Compared with the professional smart home solutions available thru Sight+Sound Gallery, these consumer products offer limited functionality and ability to integrate with other smart products.
Before you proceed with an inferior technology, we invite you take a look at the affordable Smart Hub for the URC MX HomePro system.
Where systems like Wink, Google Home, and SmartThings are capable of controlling smart appliances in a single room, the MX HomePro smart hub controls one room of entertainment equipment - such as your stereo, television, and cable box - and also has the ability to control popular automation devices located throughout your entire home including whole-home music systems, lighting, thermostats, home security systems, and more. All of this can be easily controlled using your smart phone, a tablet, or a handheld remote.
The URC MX Home Pro smart hub features include:
- Comprehensive entertainment and smart home control,
- Connects to a LAN via Wi-Fi or wired Ethernet,
- Ability to install up to 15 smart hubs per home (five rooms, three hubs per room),
- Ability to control with a mobile App,
- Accessible at home or on-the-go via smart phone or tablet,
- Mobile App features ability to integrate with third-party apps, and
- Is sold exclusively by trained URC Dealers.
